Video: How To Install A Hatch On Your Kayak!

New video by playak: Buy Kayak Hatches Here: http://amzn.to/2bvEW48 Hatches are a great way to add accessibility to inside of your kayak for storage or other rigging like fish-finders. Hatches are affordable and easy to install with common tools. I used #8 Stainless Steel Panhead Screws for my particular hatch install.

Sawyer Venom WW SUP paddle testimony!

A few months ago i found myself on the Rio Actopan in Mexico.  We run a 22 foot near vertical slide at the put in for this wild and beautiful river.  The two rapids below the falls are in a constant state of change.  Some years they are class 3+, other times class 4.  the entrance rapid is full of rocks, shallow pushy water and a big boulder in the center.  There is a short pool after this rapid.  The second rapid has a nasty sieve pile on the right and a beautiful curving drop on the left.  It…See More

Winter SUP in Mexico!

There has been no end to the possibilities for River SUP here in Mexico this year.  Our fleet of boards is bigger than ever and is taking a beating daily.  Water levels have mellowed out to a med/low flow and we are starting to miss the high water swims and BIG waves!
